Has anyone here painted any parts inside their case?

I came across these....

I am new to this computer world. But love learning more about them each day.

I realy like the paint and contraist on the HDD cage. And I also love the fact that they painted the graphics card faceplate white.

Whats everyone think? Or experance with this? After searching google and yahoo I did not come up with many topics about this.

I supposed a lot of it depends on what you paint? And with what kind of paint?

I would think that any extra layer of paint or whatever vinyl dye is would further insulate components. In a computer, rapid dissipation of heat

is necessary. Anything that decreases that ability would not be a good idea.

Although the painting of components wouldn't be something I personally would do - just keep in mind that you will have to take the parts you want to paint off of the component.  You don't want to go spray painting actual circuit boards.  That would be a big no no in my book.  But if your wanting to take the time and colorize your stuff... have at it!

If you are going to do this, avoid using spray paint with acetone in it, because acetone dissolves plastic. In other words, don't use spray paint at all, or make sure the can specifies "acetone free."
